Time to relax on longest leg of Tour de France

Bradley Wiggins has warned Team Sky will have a "real problem" if Geraint Thomas takes the leader's yellow jersey in the Tour de France ahead of defending champion Chris Froome. "I seemed to be in a good position", Cavendish said.

Yellow jersey bearer Greg Van Amervaet picked up a one-second bonus overall during an intermediate bonus sprint to increase his overall lead over Geriant Thomas to seven seconds.

Dylan Groenewegen came right back to his best to win yesterday and proved that this isn't just a show between Fernando Gaviria and Peter Sagan, although those two are dominating the green jersey battle.

"It is very emotional, I went through such a hard period so today is pure happiness", said Degenkolb, who suffered several fractures and a serious finger injury after he and some team mates were hit by a vehicle during a training ride in January 2016.

Riding as his domestique, Froome finished second to Wiggins in 2012, and memorably appeared to attack his team leader on stage 11 before sitting up and waiting for him - a moment interpreted as Froome showing he was strong enough to win on his own. We had a great first week and I'm so disappointed that I won't be continuing to Paris.

"I was following good wheels but it was choppy".

"Movistar have come here with three leading riders (Nairo Quintana, Mikel Landa and Alejandro Valverde), and with only one GC contender it becomes hard to cover all three". The riders passed kilometer 231.

Monday's first rest day, after an 800-km transfer by plane to the Alps, will be much appreciated by the riders, who crossed the line in Roubaix, their faces covered by a mixture of dust and sweat after three and a half hours in scorching heat. UAE Emirates leader Daniel Martin, the victor of Stage 6, bloodied his left elbow and tore the back of his shirt.
